“Chris “Sav” Savarese is a great instructor and coach who has dedicated himself to teaching the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Sav has a ton of experience training under some of the best instructors in the world. After taking one class at w/ him, I’m sure you will be impressed with his teaching skills and his love for Jiu-Jitsu. Every student that walks through the door will receive hands on instruction, whether it is their first Jiu-Jitsu class or they are a seasoned competitor.When I first got to know Sav, he instantly had an impact on my progression in Jiu-Jitsu. Sav has a great way of breaking down moves and positions which allows you to not only learn a technique, but more importantly to truely understand the concept and its application in Jiu-Jitsu. Sav also has a great sense of knowing what techniques will be the most beneficial to each student’s “style” of Jiu-Jitsu, as different students have different body types and physical attributes.I highly recommend Chris Savarese as an instructor to anyone looking to learn the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.”Jay Hayes BJJ Black Belt 2007 Pan American Gold Medalist 5x Grapplers Quest Champion
